I'm doing merge replication whole of my database but when I create the subscription I encounter this error:

SQLServerAgent Error: Request to run job DBXX-XX--bazresiostani2-2 (from User sa) refused because the job is already running from a request by User sa. Changed database context to 'DBXXX'. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 22022)

but I don't have this error when creating replication with some tables in database. The publication database is 2008R2 and the subscriber database is 2005

  • Is there already a job with that name on the distributor? Was the database already setup for replication before?
